Tiger Woods chose the third round of the British Open on Saturday to produce one of his best rounds of golf in a decade and climb right into contention on a packed leaderboard at Carnoustie.
Followed around the Scottish links by huge crowds and a circus of journalists and photographers, the 14-time major winner was at one point in a share of the lead after claiming a sixth birdie of the day at the 14th hole.
I hit a lot of good shots.
The problem for Woods is that he is just one of at least 20 players who will consider themselves contenders to dethrone Jordan Spieth, last year’s Open winner at Royal Birkdale.
Shortly after Woods finished his round, Italy’s Francesco Molinari seized the clubhouse lead on six under par after a superb, bogey-free round of 65.
